Stage 2: Generate Votes and complete your registration form online!
You will find below a series of downloads available for you to generate votes from past clients. Dont forget how powerful Social media is to contact clients, so use our facebook buttons too. Encourage clients to visit the voting page - it is essential that your email address is included with each vote in order for it to qualify. You will also need to complete the online registration form for your business. All questions on the app form relate to your business e.g years trading etc. Should any of the information given be found to be untrue or wilfully misleading, the entrant may be disqualified.
Stage 3: Shortlists
Voting closes on Friday 18th August 2017. At this point, based on vote number, shortlists will be created for each region i.e the top 5 companies of each regional category with the most votes, that meet our minimum entry criteria will be shortlisted. Should you be shortlisted, you will be contacted and invited to join us at the fabulous Welsh National Wedding Awards ceremony.
Stage 4: Judging & Final
After gaining further feedback, conducting mystery shops, calls and more, the judges will meet. Using this information, along with the information on your application forms, the judges will select the 2017 winners. Please remember that your main judges are your clients - without their feedback and votes the judges will not have the information they need to compile scores and so forth. The key focus areas are product quality, customer service and value for money along with scored on client detailed feedback and company information. These winners will be announced at the 201 Welsh National Wedding Awards ceremony which will be held on Sunday 12th November 2017 at the Brangwyn Hall in Swansea.
